Any handgun caliber is marginal at best, unless you have a phaser or blaster. I know my CZ75 PO1 will put that little high speed pill right where I want it, and that's good enough for me. Until CZ comes out with a CZ 2175 40 megawatt pulse pistol, that is....

Yeah, armoredman hit it on the nose.  Just to provide a visual...

Compare this  (.38 special):

At what ranges?

A 12 gauge at 5 feet is a lot different to a 12 gauge at 15 yards

Widge,

I was surprised they didn't mention it in the picture... but I'm sure they use a standard method for all shots.  I'll try to find it today.

Few tidbits I picked up along the way...

The 9mm load that brings in more customers to one local morgue: 147 grain Federal Hydrashok, it causes major wound channels and massive tissue damage, much more than Hydrshok 124 grain.

.357 Magnum Nyclads fired from a 4" Ruger Redhawk will enter and exit 3 for 3 even when hitting centermass when used against an approx 120 pound vietnamese male, fired from 50 feet. However, any one of the shots were fatal hits.

Fascinating statistics Rick!, thanks for sharing them.  The 147 grain Federal Hydrashok goes in my Glock 17 and Ruger P95 very often for carry.

My Skorpion .380 does the trick, I reckon.

Ya shot placement is critical, and there is no debating that but how many of us will be able to do that in a "fight or flight" mode? When adrenalin is pumping fine motor control, as in finger tips, is gone because blood flow is directed to the major muscle groups.

The lack of fine motor skills in "fight or flight" mode is why I carry as high a capacity as I can.  Granted, most confrontations never escalate to the point of actually shooting, but should it happen I want as many chances as possible to hit what/who I am aiming at.
